via NUT script:

or

external software, that checks if specific .exe is started (Autoit + winwaitactive command)

or (but not very handy)

change emulator settings to command line + different start commands

Thank you for the response. I have more than enough now.

All this because my joysticks don't work properly with SFML so they are hidden from attractmode.
